I love slow cooking with a crockpot. Food comes out more tender, juicy and with more flavor. It's pretty convenient to toss in the ingredients and let it go all day but you can often forget to stir the contents which can leave areas undercooked, overcooked or burnt.
The Crock-Pot Slow Cooker with iStir is an innovative slow cooker that takes care of the stirring for you.
A special lid with iStir technology comes with special mixing paddles that automatically stir your food while its cooking. The black general purpose paddle is great for stirring soups, chilis, chowders, dips and thinner recipes. The wire special-use paddle works well with thicker recipes like hearty stews and stroganoffs. You can enjoy evenly cooked food without any manual labor, freeing you up to do other things around the house.
The iStir will self-activate after two hours of cooking when food has softened and flavors melded. It will then stir every half hour for thorough mixing and even hitting until you turn it off. You can also manually start a one-minute stir cycle at any time during cooking with the press of a button.
Don't need to stir your food while it cooks? Simply switch out the iStir attachment for a Crock-Pot classic lid handle.
The Crock-Pot Slow Cooker with iStir sells for less than $70 and is an excellent cooking tool for your kitchen.
